Drive Through Rocky Mountain National Park On Trail Ridge Road

Ted snapped a few photos on our drive back to Grand Lake from Estes Park.  The Elk showed right on Que!

  • The drive over to Estes Friday morning was very slow with lots of tourists seeing the sights, but the return trip was much less crowded....with the clouds rolling in and temperatures dropping.
